About Us

Adopting A Friend

We do not have a brick and mortar shelter- our animals are housed in foster homes.  An approved application is required prior to meeting our pets.  

All applicants must be at least 18 years old, and pass an interview with one of our volunteers.



An Adoption Fee applies for all of our dogs.  This cost aides in continuing our rescue and covers medical costs for each of our pups.

Most new dogs will require training regardless of age. Please make sure you and your family are ready for the expense, work, and commitment needed to ensure a successful adoption. While we try to pre-screen medical and temperament issues before placing an animal for adoption, some behaviors or conditions can go undetected. We will be happy to help in any way should this happen, but cannot guarantee health or temperament. The adoption procedure involves these steps:

1. Complete an application.

2. Interview with one of our volunteers & Meet the pet

If you have any questions, please email us at adopt@wholesomek9.com or give us a call at 310-254-8816.


Thanks for considering adoption!

Who We Are

We strive for people friendly, children friendly, pet friendly, well balanced and Wholesome dogs.

We are a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) no-kill dog rescue that is committed to saving lives. We specialize in puppy rescue.  Our mission is to rescue shelter dogs under 1 year old that often become ill and die in shelters due to disease and their low immune systems at that young age.  We also rescue and tend to abandoned litters, stray dogs, and owner surrendered puppies.  Each month we also save dogs that are days or even hours away from being euthanized due to over population.

All of our dogs are evaluated for temperament and sociability.  We ensure that all of our dogs are vaccinated and dewormed.  Every adopter must sign a contract, agreeing to get the adopted puppy Spay/Neutered if not already done so by us.

We serve Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Bernardino, and Riverside County.


Come Visit Us

We love all of our rescue dogs and want to see them living a long, loving and wholesome life in their forever homes!
